I'm not exactly sure I understand what you are trying to do. Your example page doesn't seem to match what you describe in the text. Can you post a sample of what you want the final printout to look like?
The goal is to maintain this structure when printing, calling this Image 1...
But what I end up with when I attempt to apply the Sliding option is this, calling this Image 2...
I want the Description field to fit to the amount of text in the field as shown in Image 2, but I still want to maintain the format of image 1, with each row of fields maintaining a consistent height.
Hope that helps. Thanks so much for the help.
It looks like you have field borders. Set the field border lines to none. Then draw you own border lines on the layout. Here is the key to making this work. The vertical lines need to start at the break between the header and body. The line needs to extend just inside the footer. Then draw a horizontal line at the bottom of the body that slides up and resizes the enclosing parts. This will work but you will need to spend a little time tweaking what you want.
